The focus of the week was testing Intel’s first Alchemist generation discrete graphics card, the Arc A380. ComputerBase, along with two other German publishers, imported the Gunnir Arc A380 Photon 6G and put it to the test. All 3 journals found numerous errors.
When everything goes well, the Intel Arc A380 does not fare too badly. Performance is slightly lower than the Radeon RX 6400 and GeForce GTX 1650, especially as power efficiency isn’t very impressive, but the Arc A380 could do as a low-end product. But numerous driver bugs ensure that gamers have little fun with an Arc A380. Crashes, graphical errors, incorrect frame pacing, broken fan control, and other problem areas were detected in the test, so there is still a lot of work left for the Intel driver team.
40 FPS works fine on a 120Hz screen
The 40 FPS mode of console games like Horizon Forbidden West, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart came in second place in the articles, which is a good compromise for a 120Hz screen for better viewing. gameplay. and better graphics compared to traditional 30fps and 60fps modes. However, 60Hz TVs cannot properly display 40fps modes; you need a 120hz model to do this (one box displays three times before switching to the next).
The Resident Evil series is really creepy
Resident Evil came in first place in reports. But this time it is not about a game, but about the Netflix series, which is not particularly popular with fans. The horror movie isn’t terribly scary, it’s just horrible. Criticisms are softer, but overall reviews are lower.
More Intel Arc A380 next week
The Intel Arc A380 topic is far from over at ComputerBase. In the course of the next week there will be another article dedicated to AMD Ryzen with the Intel graphics card and there will be a worthy surprise about it. Overclocking will also be covered and the Gunnir Custom Design Fan Stop will also make an appearance.
